The metal wheels are hard on painted garage floors. They also will mark plain concrete. They occasionally turn sideways and scrape.

I can't tell for sure if they are metal wheels or not. Going in the morning to look at them.

In reply to # 3717876 by Gerry I have a set from HF. The casters on mine are crap Have tought of replacing the casters with something better but when I price good casters, 16 of them it get very expensive fast. Good casters are the secret of good car dollies.

Did you grease (or oil) the casters before putting them into service?

The Hf ones with steel wheels work well if you keep the floor fairly clean and lube the axles and swivels. And they work for relatively light cars, but I'm not strong enough to push around an '83 Trans Am setting on them, especially the front. Choose wisely.



Don't confuse me with facts. I've already made up my mind.

This is funny. Before I opened you attachment, I went looking for a "car doily". I had not seen your attachment when I found this:

Took my magnet out to my new CAR DOLLIES. Yep, the wheels are metal. I am going to take them apart today and grease the axles and the ball bearings in the casters. Look to be in excellent condition.
